Wonderware enables energy trading platform for renewable energy specialist Solo Energy
Solo Energy is a renewable energy specialist that was established in Cork in 2015. It deploys and operates distributed energy storage systems, in the form of home batteries and ‘Vehicle-to-Grid’ (V2G) electric vehicle chargers, at any home or business in the UK that wishes to host one. Hosts store excess generation in exchange for low cost, 100% renewable electricity, which is supplied by one of Solo’s local energy supply partners.
In order for the energy to be stored and shared securely, Solo needed to find a control platform capable of remotely communicating with and controlling the batteries and chargers, as well as enabling vast amounts of data to be recorded and securely stored.
They identified Wonderware System Platform 2017 as the software most suitable for their needs.
